  • Moltke as a pure AA platform (2 pairs of AA gunners)

I put two pairs of high level AA gunners (reached reload cap) on the ship:

R-slots:  KM40 with practically infinite ammo. Great for taking out target at longer distance. Due to the large amount of ammo space I keep spamming the gun to scare enemy planes away.

T-slots:  3.46" duals. If any CV has the audacity to fly close, I switch to my 3.46" to spam shell at insane rate of 0.32 second per shot. 10 barrels firing at 3 shots per second is very very effective regardless of your skill in aimming.

I put 3 engineers on support slots to give myself 37 seconds of overheat at 53 knots. I need the burst of speed to chase down planes or to escape from danger.

Thanks you NF desginers for granting KM the best AA gunners, the best AA guns, and an over-powered AA ship!!!

Wow, did you discover that by yourself? :P

(you can also run a 120 engineer on your BO slot)

I am sure this is no new discovery but I did find out about this myself. Before I was driving an AA Emdan which runs out of ammo really fast. Now I can spam KM40 all day long. And those 5" shells usually kill with one hit.

I am looking into the possibility of doing this on a BB. But I cannot find a suitable AA platform in this class of ships. May be CVs can work? Haha.  I want to be a tank AA ship.

Honestly tho. I shoot down about the same number of planes on this ship as on my CV Implacible. On CV I mainly shoot down fighters but on Moltke I shoot down bombers. The credits isn't as great but the number of kills is really satisfying. Plus, its a lot of work running a CV.

The rule actually applied to CA as well. I have been warned that Moltke needs to carry either triple 6", dual 8" or the Kurst 11" so that the team would not be denied the full benefit of a CA slot. But I am willing to risk a one day ban for doing what I do.

Not sure when you were warned or on what server but that is incorrect here.  And if it was some random player that said it - I guess how stupid rumors and ideas get spread around.

Server rules:

3. Players may outfit their ships in any configuration they desire. However, the
configuration must provide an offensive or defensive capability that assists
the team commensurate with the ship class (such as AA ships for DD/CL and CA, but not an AA only BB, TW or standard gun-type fittings).

It kinda depends on what room type you are playing. I am pretty sure that when you are playing a moltke in Blitz without R slots that it is kinda useless...

All KM BBs have great AA spots. I advise you to load the level 30 AA guns on your BB1-4s and the level 42? on the 5-6s. The point of having AA on your BB is give cover to yourself and your closeby teammates. 

It used to be handy to blind the enemy with it, but wouldn't trust to much on it with all the bugs/desyncs and subs. Had it very often that I killed all scouts in my surrounding, knowing that there is no sub near me, and that I somehow catch three full hits from the enemy *_*

I still use my AA to kill all kinds of planes nearby, but I am not going to use its "advantage" anymore. A last tip is to keep in mind that you are battleship and you ll be fine.

BB no. But u can have normal line CAs.

Emden is just for low lv sailors and only good for early 30lvs, for my KM higher lv sailors I use Deutchland(47) and then P Pro(54) as AA ship. The downside using normal line ship is that u have to use BO and one less sailor support. P Pro T slots has better spread/coverage than Moltke.

Don't know where get or heard that rule. If you played gb hundred of times you can see a moltke or any other ca with just aa guns on T slot and you didn't even wonder -_-
